Merry Christmas

I always enjoy putting up the tree each year. It seems to be the jumping off point for all of the Christmas decor to come. 
A few throws and Santa himself warm up the room.

As you're looking in from the library the room seems to take on a glow of it's own.
A blue and white bowl filled with greenery and antlers for the entry table.
The shelf below holds a basket of logs and greenery for the deer to nestle in.
The small black table holds a blue and white bowl with berries and iced jingle bells.

A new glassed tray holds a vintage inspired Santa.
All lite up at night.
I'm wishing you and yours
the Happiest of Holidays.
May the true meaning of
Christmas touch your hearts
now and 
throughout the year.

Fondly ~ Lynne ~

Christmas in the Sun Porch

The sun porch is the first room you enter when you come to my back door. It's a room that puts a smile on your face and a song in your heart. The room has evolved over the past 19 years.

I purchased the

Christmas Touches in the Laundry Room

For the last couple of days, we've been experiencing the full force of winter in our area. We've had lots of ice and a wee bit of snow and wind. The temperature this a.m. was a -6 degrees. It is definitely winter in our area. I know it's extremely cold, but it sure makes it feel like Christmas is a few days away.
I added wee touches of Christmas in the laundry room this year. This bottle cap truck decoration seemed perfect for the laundry room. Topped off with a half bow of plaid ribbon only added to its cuteness.

Dressing Up the Master Bedroom for Christmas

You know that moment when you decide you're not going to take a lot of Christmas out and before you know it, the house is happy and full of Christmas? That's exactly what happened to me. 
My game plan changed

Christmas in the Library

Decorating for the holidays is in full swing for many us. I finally started pulling mine out after Thanksgiving. My plan was to start a new tradition and begin before Thanksgiving, this year mishaps of one thing or another prevented that from happening. Is someone trying to tell me something? 
I didn't pull out a lot this year, trying to keep things more on the simple side; the library formerly known as the dining room got a few touches.
